More from Obama in the 2008 Town Hall debate:
"When George Bush came into office, we had surplus. And now we have a $0.5 trillion deficit annually. When George Bush came into office, our debt, national debt was around 5 trillion. It's now over $10 trillion. We've almost doubled it. And so while it's true that nobody's completely innocent here, we have had, over the last eight years, the biggest increases in deficit spending and national debt in our history."
